14 Days Progressive Abs Challenge To Burn Belly Fat
4. Low Plank With Knee To Elbow (40 seconds)
STEP 1: Start in the forearm plank position with your elbows under shoulders and body in a straight line from heels to head.
STEP 2: Bend your left knee and bring it toward the outside of your left elbow. Try to maintain your back straight.
STEP 3: Return to the starting position and repeat with the other leg. One repetition is when you finish the move on both sides.
5. Lying Leg Raises (20 seconds)
To make the lying leg raise less demanding, try setting your legs on the ground in between reps. You may also bend the knees through the movement to minimise the stress on the abdominals. The more you bend your knees, the easier the movement becomes.
To elevate the level of difficulty, try lifting your head and shoulders even further off the floor by tightly crunching your upper abdominal muscles even more. The more tightly you contract your upper abs all through the exercise, the more work your lower mid-section will have to do.
To work the lower stomach muscles further, grip a weighted object (dumbbell, plate, kettlebell) between your feet or ankles.
